how much economic growth that will produce. what is clear is that the 1.3% economic growth that u.s. achieved in this second quarter of this year isn't enough to make up for the romney short fall. and with the u.s. economy forecasted to grow by about 3% in 2013 and 2014, romney's plan, as attractive as it sounds, is in doubt. kevin hasset is an economic adviser for the mitt romney campaign and author of some of the economic plans. kevin, romney plans seem to assume that simple act of lowering taxes will generate enough growth to raise the revenue to pay for the steep cost of those cuts. but a lot of economists agree with that notion. it's a classic chicken and egg scenario. i talked to larry summers a couple days ago. he can't get the math to work either. >> it's easy to have an attractive tax plan if your campaign staff can make it up. the reality is that every expert who's looked at it found that cutting taxes by 20% costs $5 trillion. >> okay. let's get down to this. we understand there will be certain revenues that will come in. there will be certain revenues lost. you kept peop

foothold. he was also worried that there was no deterrents to act against those groups, and the u.s. security presence was shrinking rapidly. the ambassador noted that this was becoming a huge issue and a huge problem for them. and that the drawdown from some 34 u.s. security personnel to 27 in july, he noted once again in august that that number was expected to drop to seven. the ambassador was very concerned about the creation of a security vacuum, noting that he couldn't rely on local security to fill that gap. another cable just before the attacks noted that host nation support is lacking and cannot be depended on to create a safe environment. a week before the attacks, a cable sent from benghazi noted that police have established a 24/7 response to the mission, but that raises the question, where were those personnel once that attack began? >> right. it also raises the question, was there anything that could have been done to prevent the attack at the consulate? >> right. and that's always what people want to know. this sort of monday morning quarterbacking. once all the pieces

fundamentally untrue. from a u.s. senator acting as a surrogate for mitt romney. what she just described there is not what the blunt amendment is. mitt romney really does support a policy that's not just about religious employers, not just about catholic hospitals. it's about any employer anywhere in the country being able to block their employees from getting birth control through their health insurance. sounds awful, right? that's why it keeps coming up. picture your boss. does your boss want you to have the pill? do you not know? do you want to find out? because that is is actually one of the choices you have in this election between your boss deciding whether you get the pill under your health insurance or that not being your boss' business. that really is the choice. because mitt romney really does support the blunt amendment and the blunt amendment really does give your boss the choice about whether or not your contraception is covered by your insurance. and the romney campaign and the romney campaign surrogates, including u.s. senators and the candidate, himself, mitt romney, are
